To consider how tenuous and short-lived our existence, is to ponder some of its arresting moments of growth and the possibility such infinitesimal particles of the universe are just beginning to awaken.
Whether by the oregano and garlic aroma
The eagle’s screech on high
A distant parental swell of a daughter’s little league score
A boy’s first job
The brown bags with milk bottle on the bottom
Wonder Bread on top
A cheery “Have a nice day, Mrs. Gilbert”
Discovered independence brought forward
By Tropic of Cancer’s ink and paper visions
An off-base Tijuana week-end pass
Marksman medal polished
Old Spice weather pattern alight
Reality’s first XXX presentation
Painted eyes eliciting compassion
Where Penthouse and Playboy pages once ruled
To remember the boy of curiosity
Now a man of resolve
Conjures classic images
Housed now behind
Foreshadowed urns of origins
Questioning of another kind
Makes buoyant the cushion of consciousness
Defying impending gravity
Asking again of the heart ever faithful
“Will I be ready to accept
Time’s next momentary need for me?”

|Yes, evolving is the necessary and awakening chapters in the walk through the time lapse of existence, even as we, we individuals, believe that ours is the only existence worth contemplating. Near the end we drool in our rockers and traverse back the same evolving highway that got us to where are, only we color and tint what we have been through with much softer shades of existence.|
